Fulfill Duties To Wife Or State? (news article)

on September 24, 2013
The Duke of Cambridge sure is cutting it close! After fulfilling his commitment at a charity polo match on July 13, Prince William reportedly hurried right back to London. Was he worried that the labor already started?

Despite that fact that July 13 is Kate Middleton’s due date, Prince William still had duties to fulfill as the Duke of Cambridge. One such obligation was participating in a polo match for charity at the Kent & Curwen Royal Polo Cup in Sydmonton, England.

Prince William Hurries Home After Polo Match

The Duke was joined by his brother, Prince Harry for the match, which was an exciting one that ended with Harry’s team defeating William’s four goals to three.
It’s safe to say that William had other things on his mind with July 13 being his wife’s due date. The Duke reportedly left soon after the game ended, rushing home to be back with Kate at Kensington Palace in London, according to Us Weekly.
It must be extremely stressful for William right now to have to take time away from Kate, knowing that she could give birth to their first child at any moment. But such is the life of a royal, and should the baby not come on July 13, William is slated to compete in another polo match on the 14th in support of WellChild, Centrepoint, and Child Bereavement UK in Gloucestershire, England.

Prince William: Should He Cancel His Polo Match With Kate Middleton’s Due Date Past?

William is so honorable and admirable for sticking to his commitments despite the his personal life — he clearly knows his duty and responsibility.
But at the same time, shouldn’t he be able to make an exception? Sydmonton, where he was today, is just over 60 miles away from London and Gloucestershire is over 100 miles away! What would he do if he wasn’t able to be by Kate’s side while she gives birth to their first child because he was playing polo?
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? If Kate hasn’t given birth by July 14, should Prince William still go to his polo match? Let us know!
